and once the government. what to do the government it's not doing its job properly look at what in the note for people to wake up otherwise we'll just become slaves to the system who want to be treated as humans and they believe they can make a difference imo the government has to change things because they don't have a choice i know with greece in shambles and neighboring portugal trashed by the rating agencies spain is facing not just a financial but a deepening social crisis and members of the so-called indignant marches say they want their dignity preserved but whether their calls will be heard is another issue even those corteen madrid. one of those more bad news for greece as well its credit score has been dropped to just one notch above defaults following last week's second bailout package ratings giant moody's says
8:02 am
a rejigging debt implies substantial losses to private investors financial journalist overt felt so that the rescue package is nothing more than banks paying money to other banks. we're bailing out the banks and we wouldn't be that soft i presume with greece if there wasn't the problem of the french and the german banks not only of the people but of course they are the major players. they were vulnerable to the greek situation were throwing money at the banks through greek this package will certainly not help the greek economy the greek economy needs growth and since you are in the midst of a very bad recession blige the country to cut spending to increase taxes then throwing some money at it is not the solution greece is now effectively in the fall because if you calculate on the net present value what private bumpus. we'll given
8:03 am
you. a value reduction or you come to a value reduction of around twenty percent in europe we don't have a political union and we don't we certainly don't have a flexible labor market so from the beginning. there were huge weaknesses in the whole construct of the monetary union in europe and my big surprise is that it has lasted ten years before through this kind of crisis these weaknesses came to the surface. and on the other side of the ocean american politicians are still tussling about how to raise the country's debt ceiling while republicans and democrats argue secretary of state hillary clinton has been trying to calm nervous asian investors that they will meet next week's deadline but economic analyst martin headachy says it's already too late. the united states is essentially bankrupt in any case if they increase their debt ceiling actually as the chinese rating agency dugong has been saying even if they find an agreement and they increase the debt ceiling well
8:04 am
what is going to be as a result more dead so if the u.s. has thirteen point five trillion of their and that's just the nomination of their budget it's not even the fiscal deb including all the unfunded liabilities that the united states government actually keeps of the books and if you include this figure really a looking at two hundred trillion us dollar of it's absolutely beyond control and all timidly it appears that the united states will be facing a sovereign debt crisis very much along the lines of the so-called pigs the european periphery as well also the other european story supposedly stronger countries soviet specter a major major sovereign debt crisis from the major western countries and we suggest that the investor should stay out of that region and look for a look for gold silver commodities tool to help protect against what's going to come there's a lot of talk always in the rest of ours the dangers of china china's military
8:05 am
growing and how much of a risk this poses to asia and the rest of the go there if you're looking at how much the united states is spending on military versus china it's totally disproportionate the u.s. is spending a lot more the only difference is the u.s. is doing that is borrowed money and they can't afford it so you have to end saw. there is more on where the money is going you know just a few minutes around. just to get deep pockets once again but this time it's bankrolling libyan rebels with billions of euros with more than one. of the little tricks from the pharmacy the reports on the russian are big so painfully killing themselves with a drug store cocktail because it's cheaper than her. you without he now the king of norway has been. moving a minute of silence for the ninety three victims killed in friday's twin attacks that scandinavian country has been shaken by the bombing of government buildings in
8:06 am
oslo and the massacre at island youth the tragedy has also touched the royal family the crown princess of norway says that brother was one of the first victims gunned down at the camp the man who's with me to both atrocities is appearing at a closed court hearing to claim. the role of has already said the killings were gruesome but necessary investigative journalist tony gosling believes there's a new kind of terrorism on the rise. anders breivik thought he was some kind of teutonic knights from medieval times because he's echoing the kind of crusader attitude that it's a very strange version of christianity that he. is he says he's a christian i don't think he is maybe the same kind of strange version of christianity that bush and blair have been coming up with over the last ten years or so so i think that this is actually the tip of an iceberg is actually quite a lot of this neo nazi activity out there and now i think the antiterrorist all
8:07 am
thought he's right across the world we're going to have to take this brand of terrorism much more seriously and particularly worrying is that he was a freemason and but even as declared that he was a freemason i would imagine that the norwegian police are now going to be talking to other all the other members of any masonic lodges that he was in because this seems to be the place where this kind of fake christian rather nasty racist ideology was cooked up i would also add that it was interesting the police said they never come across him before the norwegian police but i wonder very much i wonder if the secret service in norway has been watching him because it was very strange that when he was first arrested on friday the police actually called out his name to him now it was very i would be amazed if they would have actually known as they first approached him what his name was i would have thought that from the arrest point that's where the investigation would have started from. well as a bit of it claims he wanted a change in society apparently referring to the country's large muslim population
8:08 am
social expos think the tragedy might now force no agents to reconsider immigration policy. i think what this did is it really highlighted the immigrant i don't want to call it a problem i want to call it you know immigrant reality there is a huge influx of immigrants coming into norway and you're oddly you know mostly in the bottom most norwegians probably didn't know that was twenty five percent immigrate but we're friday they do a lot more of those statistics now i think you're going to be you know people saying well gosh this guy was a creative lunatic but we have another pretty serious problem too the prime minister you know specifically in the labor party generally did a great job you know comforting the nation those twenty four hours were haptic they were you know terrifying they did great job comforting the nation here's the issue with people hearing we're right word with the leader pretty good we have to do in norway is you know i don't think that the extent concern to people who are nervous
8:09 am
about the immigrant population you know because of the more extreme groups you know these extreme views if that makes sense and adopt them into their own platform and facebook you know the average joe q boder we understand your concerns about this issue but we think norway painted a great interaction here is why so instead of managing and you know governing through fear they have to adopt some of those you know who are sort of jingoistic policies but also presents you know a more positive view of norway or ward. public policy expert margaret a book on why they're talking to myself from chicago. now at ten minutes past the hour here in moscow germany is lending a libyan rebels one hundred million euros despite staying out of nato as bombing campaign against the gadhafi regime but when it says the loan is for quote civilian and humanitarian purposes the germans abstained from a u.n. vote on military intervention in march but chancellor angela merkel has since expressed hope that the nato mission succeeds. recognizing the recognition rather
8:10 am
of the transitional national council as a legitimate government has come and passed the loan it comes as the rebels await access to billions of dollars of colonel gadhafi his assets that are frozen in offshore banks german government consultant christophe things berlin has a vested interest in cashing in on the war. it is really a big question of what this money is being used for first of all who controls that then next has nato ever cared for the civilian population in libya i don't think so a group of countries bombing libya and using uranium weapons of course is a group of countries not caring for the civilian population abstaining just being neutral in this case of course was that enough because nato has used the security resolution. three hand to do just anything they want in effect they are fighting on the side of the rebels they're fighting the libyan government nobody knows when
8:11 am
nato will decide to you know protect some civil populations and then in a way kill the legal government more than twenty billion dollars in this money is going to be used to. help the rebels but of course that is in a way totally illegal you can't just take money away from from governments and give it to rebels germany wants a piece of the cake to be to be clear germany wants to maintain fifteen percent of the libyan oil as a percentage of the total oil imports of germany. without t.v. now in the shadow of nine eleven u.s. and bob's on a mission to root out terrorists but it led to a network of secret prisons and seizing suspects often without much evidence after years of torment many of those accused have since been released later this hour we hear from one former inmate who and the brutality rather that he had to endure. i saw many people got killed on the torture and. i was one of those who
